Gil Sandler, the legendary Baltimore folklorist who wrote for local newspapers and WYPR, draped the city in stories that will last forever. 

From former Governor Donald Schaefer to Al Capone to Leona Gage (the young woman from Glen Burnie who won "Miss America," only to have her crown ripped away!)...Gil gathered our local history and shared it with humor, beauty, wisdom, and utter charm.

Here, his three WYPR producers: Lisa Morgan, Luke Spicknall and Mary Rose Madden share a collaborative we hope would make Gil proud.
